If you are looking for a sit-down seafood experience close to the convenience of Rt. 28 accommodations, then The Skipper might be the best stop for you. The Skipper is a great choice for couples searching for a scenic night out, or for families who want to enjoy a special treat with the sophisticated taste of local seafood outside of the fryer. The Skipper serves up a wide variety of local fish, including numerous lobster specialties market catches, and of course, clam chowder. The restaurant features two floors, a deck, and ample amounts of seating with views of the Yarmouth shore. It is open for both lunch and dinner, but tends to get quite busy on weekends during peak summer times. If you can handle the occasional wait, the views and food are worth the while.
Our Suggestions: The raw bar here is fully stocked with local oysters that are a great way to feel connected to the ocean agriculture of Cape Cod. Choose from Yarmouth oysters, Dennis oysters, Wellfleet oysters, or sample a half dozen of all three. For entrees the jumbo lobster roll is a half pound of home made lobster salad stuffed into an 8 inch bun. The baked native scrod is also a great choice for a more traditional fish dish. It is topped with a crumb blend, butter, lemon, and white wine.
The Skipper is also part of the Dockside Hotel Group’s dining discount program, meaning participating Cape Cod hotels like the Mariner Motor Lodge (a family hotel in Yarmouth) offer discounts on each adult entree for their guests. If this is something you are after in your Cape Cod vacation, try searching for Cape Cod accommodation that offers a dining discount plan like the Mariner Motor Lodge.
